Grasshopper Eating

Photographer: Aaron Cress
Location: Mt Ulla, NC
Date: August, 2011

This image was made at a Sloan park located in Mt Ulla. I came across this grasshopper over a small pond and it didn't seem to be bothered by my presence. The grasshopper not jumping away allowed me to move in within about foot from it and the flower. This image was made with a 55mm macro lens.
